5.0 out of 5 stars Minna no Nihongo, 12 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Minna No Nihongo: Translation and Grammatical Notes Bk. 1 (Minna No Nihongo 1 Series) (Perfect Paperback)
If you are an English speaker studying Japanese using Minna no Nihongo Part 1 this is a very useful companion book which makes the material presented in Minna no Nihongo more accessible. With the main text book written almost entirely in Kana, this book provides English translations of the conversation examples and, perhaps more importantly, details of how the relevant grammar works following its introduction in the chapters of the main book. Each chapter is prefaced with a vocabulary list with words written in Kanji (if appropriate) as well as Hiragana.

The appendices are a concise but useful reference covering numbers and counters, expressions of time and verb conjugations.

All these good points aside, it's a fairly dry Japanese text book and IMO not the best choice if you're planning on learning Japanese through self-study. However if you are using Minna no Nihongo as a classroom text, this book is definitely worth a look.
